The Final Stretch

As far as faculties go, Creative Industries students have maintained their pole position for a third week in a row, but Business & Society is snapping at their heels.

However, to win the prize, it’s a race between the Schools. After three weeks, he School of Care Sciences is still in the lead for winning the Celebration Event. Looks like nurses and midwives are the keenest for a celebration! Their faculty-mates in the School of Health, Sport and Professional Science, on the other hand, appear to be slowpokes when it comes to filling in surveys, languishing in last place (43%), dragging down the average for LSE...

The top five still contains the same schools as last week, but the order has changed. Looks like a neck-and-neck race heading for a photo finish!

Fill in the NSS, encourage your coursemates, and spread the word!

If you want a chance to party, help your School top the league by the end of the month!

FBS:59%, CES:54%, FCI:60%, LSE:54%

Here’s how USW’s Schools are doing at the end of week one:

Care Sciences: 67%, Art and Design: 65%, Psychology and Therapeutic Studies: 65%, Humanities and Social Sciences:63%, Computing and Mathematics: 63%
